Selecting the Right Wooden Door for your Home

Your wooden doors serve a much bigger purpose than simply enhancing your home’s curb appeal and aesthetic value. They can also…

  1. Add protection and security to your home
  2. Prevent harmful elements from getting into your home
  3. And much more!

But how do you go about buying the right wooden door?

Tips for Selecting a Wooden Door

  1. Know the weather patterns in your area: One of the biggest things to remember about wooden doors is that they will expand and contract with the weather, making them extremely susceptible to premature wear and tear. The solution to this problem is to purchase a wooden door that has fiberboard panels, which add both strength and durability.
  2. Solid wood is the way to go: Solid wooden doors are…well, solid. They are more durable and even more fire resistant than hollow core wooden doors.
  3. Keep the door off the floor: You should allow about a half of an inch in between your floor and your door. It is much easier to accomplish this if you have your floors installed before you purchase your new wooden door.
  4. Determine your desired style: There are several styles available for you to choose from. Which style best matches your home’s existing décor and your preferences? The choice is yours.
  5. Buy your new wooden door from a reputable dealer: Need help choosing the right wooden door? Architectural Window Supply can help!
